Left redefines patriotism again!

Remember the good old days when anyone that vehemently hated the old Bush guard and “spoke truth to power” against them was being patriotic for evil fascist challenging government? You might not, since now that anyone doing the same, since the occupant of 1600 Pennsylvania street has a (D) next to his name, gets called a racist for doing so.

Well, it looks like we have another such a moment in the works. We got a revelation from The Tennessean that Obamacare will not only cost us far more than we pay now, but will also make everyone wait longer for care. That’s exactly what everyone that heard these idiots on the left promise that if we passed this big ass over 2K pages bill nobody knew, to find out what was in it, would never happen. We would suddenly have to provide care for anywhere from 20 to 40 million more people, depending on who was telling us how many people suffered from lack of government provided “free” care, with the same number of professional providers we have now, or if you are inclined to believe these idiots and their fantasies a few more, and it would all happen without either longer waits, higher costs, and even rationing of the worst kind, because they, as all powerful, collectivist progressive government autocrats that know everything better than the peasants, magically would overcome the laws of physics, biology, economics, and human nature. So now it is no longer evil racists saying so, but it is coming straight from a think tank the state’s largest health insurer, BlueCross BlueShield of Tennessee, launched this year to study the interface between public policy and health care.

But don’t despair! The left has an answer to this revelation. That great round guy, with a mass a little shy of that of a small moon, that has made himself stinking rich producing idiotic movies he claims are documentaries about the evils of capitalism and the glory of the Cuban government controlled healthcare system, and charging leftists twerps a lot of money to watch these freak shows – talk about an evil capitalist – has a solution! And it is a doozy. Patriotic Americans will not at all mind waiting longer for healthcare! Seriously, that’s their answer. Of course they are pretending this only can and will happen for those that have to wait for non life-threatening care, but only a dunce or a Marxist ideological twit buy that nonsense. Everyone will wait. And there will be rationing of the worst kind. It’s how this stuff ALWAYS works, and you can look to the systems in Western Europe that our aristocracy wants to give us here. There is a reason that our public sector servants excused themselves and their “bestest buddies” from this abomination of a power grab masquerading as “free healthcare” for all the people. At least now we know it’s patriotic to wait on government to service you like a bull services cows.

Today the NHS, tomorrow Obamacare

The next time that some progressive tells you that you have no proof when you point out that there are very few ways government controlled healthcare can reduce costs, none of them good, point out this umpteenth example of healthcare rationing by a government controlled system to them.

Family doctors have been ordered to ration the number of patients they send for life-saving cancer scans to save money. They are being told to slash the number they refer to hospital for tests including ultrasounds, MRIs and CT scans commonly used to spot tumours. Last night experts warned the cost-saving measures increased the risk of patients being diagnosed too late and dying unnecessarily.

If you thought insurance companies where evil, wait unitl Uncle Sam owns it all and tells you you can’t get something you desperately need, something life saving. Not only can’t you complain to anyone about it, it’s not as if the government will police itself effectively, efficiently, or fairly, but you now have no where else to go either, because there will be no competition allowed. Can we say this decision came from a death pannel, or is that still politically incorrect?

Tax insanity to keep the behemoth from dying..

Check out the latest plan by the people that feel gas is too cheap: tax mileage.

The Obama administration has floated a transportation authorization bill that would require the study and implementation of a plan to tax automobile drivers based on how many miles they drive. The plan is a part of the administration’s “Transportation Opportunities Act,” an undated draft of which was obtained this week by Transportation Weekly. This follows a March Congressional Budget Office report that supported the idea of taxing drivers based on miles driven. Among other things, CBO suggested that a vehicle miles traveled (VMT) tax could be tracked by installing electronic equipment on each car to determine how many miles were driven; payment could take place electronically at filling stations.

So not only are they going to make vehicles more expensive – who do you think will have to pay for this mileage tracking equipment, huh? – they want to milk you for driving around. They may pretend that it’s about raising revenue, but it’s obvious that the end result of this policy is to force people to use public transportation – so all those demcorat friendly & donor corporations that stand to gain billions in tax payer subsidized projects can rake in even more cash – and to control & limit the average serf’s mobility. Oh yeah, this new tax will of course be on top of an already existing federal gas tax and whatever state gas tax there may be as well.

What’s next? They are going to want to tax bowel movements? Breathing? People have to do those sooner than later, and thus, they can make some serious cash from that all. It’s just getting ridiculous what these crooks are doing “for the good of us all”. This nanny state is quickly turning into a real tyrannical and abusive state.
